    Hey guys, quick question and hopefully this isn't beaten to death or anything like that. For a 2014 TRF Sport, 4X4, have anybody used Mobil 1 or Amsoil 75w-90 for the rear (limited slip) differential, transfer case, and front differential? If so have you ever had any issues? I know both have the limited slip differential additives in it, so I'm not worried, I'm just asking. I was just going to use the factory Toyota oil, but they want $37 a quart. Yeah go screw yourself.

    Wow 37$ a quart do they put it in Yeti bottles? Just did mine with the Mobil 1 you listed seems fine after a few thousand miles. I got mine 8$ a quart free shipping on Amazon.

    Mobil 1 Good, Amsoil better gives you 100% synthetic and higher quality. Biggest difference is Amsoil has better base oil than std synthetics and more additives.

    I did not have good luck with Mobil 1 in my 08, caused squealing in the drive train. I had better luck with Redline MT-90.

    Toyota recommends using a 75w85 gl5 which is a very thin oil for getting better MPGs, Redline makes a version of 75w85 I get it for $16.50 a quart from Walmart online and have it shipped free to their store closest to me. but next 30k im going with the 75w90 thicker oil, the drain plug seems to be showing metal powder on it using the 75w85 .

    I figured this would be the case, but I just wanted to double-check. I know that a lot of people use for example, Red Line, on some cars that'll work perfect for the rear differential, but it'll be garbage in the transfer case. I know a buddy of mine who had that happen to him. He had to take the red line out of his transfer case and use synchromesh. So I just wanted to see if it was anything like that with this truck. It's not like Mobil ever made a bad product.

    Any name-brand gear oil will work great: Mobil 1, Valvoline, etc. Amsoil is a boutique brand of synthetic and may hold up better over a longer period of time, so may be worth the extra cost depending on how you use / abuse the truck. But it won't really make a difference as long as the service is performed at regular intervals.
